Stay (I Missed You)

by Lisa Loeb

You say I only hear what I want to
You say I talk slow all the time so

And I thought what I felt was simple
And I thought that I don’t belong
And now that I am leavin’
Now I know that I did somethin’ wrong ’cause I missed you
Yeah, yeah, I missed you

And you say I only hear what I want to
I don’t listen hard, don’t pay attention
To the distance that you’re running
To anyone, anywhere
I don’t understand if you really care
I’m only hearing negative
No, no, nos

So I, I turn the radio on, I turn the radio up
And this woman was singin’ my song
Lover’s in love and the other’s run away
Lover is crying cause the other won’t stay
Some of us hover while we weep for the other who was
Dyin’ since the day they were born
Well, well, this is not that
I think that I’m throwin’, but I’m thrown

And I thought I’d live forever, but now I’m not so sure
You try to tell me that I’m clever
But that won’t take me anyhow, or anywhere with you

You said that I was naive
And I thought that I was strong, oh
I thought, “Hey I can leave, I can leave”
Oh, but now I know that I was wrong, cause I missed you
Yeah, I missed you

You said, you caught me cause you want me*
And one day you let me go
You try to give away a keeper, or keep me
Cause you know you’re just so scared to lose
And you say, “Stay”

You say I only hear what I want to
